Back in March I did something unprecedented and approached a guest musician, whose work I had been avowedly into for some time, to see if he would be up for doing a mix for Deep Transmissions.
The man in question, Mark Hand, possesses a portfolio of exquisitely crafted music, with immaculate releases on Signals, Fatdog and Vicario records, alongside playing keys for King Bee, and readying a forthcoming second EP for Fatdog.
In spite of this, and his ongoing sound engineering engagements, he still found time to put this together which says as much for Mark as a person as it does a musician. So without further delay it is my great pleasure to share this very special guest transmission by Mark Hand.
You've had the wait, now enjoy the good thing.
Be sure to check Mark at the following spaces for more uncommonly good music:

It's been a bumpy ride this year for regular instalments, but you know what they say about familiarity breeding contempt and good things coming to those who.. anyway to atone this extended 19 track set brings you what is very much a mix of 2 halves. The first one taking you on a warm, honeyed meander through an array of uncommonly good vocal house productions, referencing the deeper side of Tony Humphries inspired garage courtesy of Javonntte's 'These Words', to the melancholia of Derrick Carter and Salt City Orchestra's 'Got Change For a Twenty', which resonates throughout Ugly Drums' 'Change The Key'. Then, from around 40 minutes in things take a more hypnotic turn before coming full circle.
